Why ?I am not a "foreigner " friends, 100% Indian. Now an ashamed Indian.
It was your idea to come to India, something happened so now you are personally responsible
Is that how it works ?
Make your own family there from friends. I did this when i lived abroad and i have more respect for the people i made friends with than my own family.There is absolutely nothing wrong about our traditional culture, in fact from yesterday some mashimas, kakimas ( Bengalis will understand ) and didis are taking care of the kid and his mom like their own relatives. I miss it a lot in Europe.
You will have to get over it. The idea was to introduce your son to your home country. This is not a wrong idea and it cannot stop because of one experience.But this is my hometown, Kolkata. We were really helpless elsewhere. There must be people like this everywhere ( tha was the experience growing up) May be it was our bad luck.But I kind of feel guilty and responsible for the entire ordeal.
Thing about Indians is does not matter what passport you got, one look in the mirror will dispel that notion.

I'd laugh it off unless there was some subtext in that video to make me think otherwise. Was there a voice trying to give us a bad name ? if so then your colleague is right.I remember getting into an argument with a colleague once: he showed a video of a guy groping a woman in a bus and the video was either shot or uploaded by a foreigner and my colleague was complaining that this 'firangi' was giving our country a bad name! when i pointed out that the pervert was the one giving us a bad name, he replied that the foreigner had no business posting that video. when pressed further that had an Indian posted the video would there be a problem he responded with "no". last time i ever spoke to the moron.
Parental upbringing seems to focus more on "what will the neighbours say" than on actual morality.
My cousin told me once he slapped this air hostess bottom after he'd had a few. She happened to be trans. She filed a complaint and the result is my cousin got banned from that airline for ten years. And two other airlines as well since they have some collaboration.
Best part of the story is he tells me this in front of his wife
